Implicit Bias in the Workplace Training for IT Staff

This session is designed to provide an overview of implicit (unconscious) bias, particularly related to personnel transactions (employee selection, promotion, discipline, etc.), but the process is relevant to most decision making. Workshop participants will gain an understanding of implicit v. explicit bias, as well as the theory behind the development of "preferences" in early childhood and implicit bias in adults. Several research studies will illustrate how implicit bias impacts decisions in a number of fields, including higher education.
